I just called o2 iphone department who said to me that the MMS feature will not work on the iphone until 17th june and the technical assistant claimed that no one could possibly have the MMS working on their Iphones as it is not yet available for o2 uk customers so if anyone has got it working I would love to know how you did it and what IPCC file you used as according to o2 its impossible and wont work till 17th june.

Yes you can download and install the latest firmware : you don't need to have a developper acount.
Many people, I've heard, have done this way, and it works !

i'm assuming i can't upgrade my IPCC using itunes because i'm on the newest itunes version? I am trying to get MMS enabled and itunes won't even see the .ipcc file. Instead it looks only fir IPSW files using the check for updates+Shift.

Right guys on O2, Listen, and all will be revealed.
I have had MMS working since Beta 1 without any hassle and now have it on 3.0 GM without the need of an ipcc on O2.
What you need to do if you want it now (before the 17th) is phone o2 and migrate your tarrif from an o2 45 with iPhone (example) to just an o2 45 (you will lose your free wifi and visual voicemail) if they question why you are doing this tell them you no longer use the sim in an iPhone and have put it in a different one. (I said Nokia 5800 at the time)
Once that is done your tariff will change at midnight and MMS will be enabled.
You will now need to change some settings on your iPhone now as Internet and MMS will not work out of the box.
With the new 3.0 GM release o2 have updated their GPRS settings to iPhone specific ones (iData), these won't work on a non-iPhone tarrif.
Go to settings, general, network, cellular data network, and change all the APNs to wap.o2.co.uk and all the usernames to o2wap, MMS and Internet will now work 100%
You can change back to the iPhone tarrif and reset these settings on the 17th.
Or you could just wait 8 days and it'll work anyway. I was going to change back to iPhone tarriff today until o2 told me iPhone MMS will stay switched off until the 17th.

If I upgrade to 3.0GM on my 3g, am I still able to unlock the phone for other carriers, or is the unlock done?

The advice is not to upgrade from BB 2.28
I believe they will be able to unlock the BB that comes with FW3.0 but if not the fallback is to get BB 2.28 working with FW3.0 If they have to do this then it is possible that they might unlock BB2.30.03 at some time in the future. Also any piggyback SIMs are more likely to work with 2.30.03 than 4.20.x
I would advise waiting until The Dev Team tell you it's safe to upgrade.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Nice Informative Post smeeshum thanks for that.
As for the cahp whos say you dont need to do any of that maybe your circumstanmces are different your not on an iphone tariff more than likely hence why your MMs is working as like smeeshum said if your on an iphone tarriff your MMs wont work unless you change off an iphone tariff or wait till june 17th.
